Red.

Officially the colour of fall 2017, Red has taken over the world by storm. Whether it be the runway or the streets outside those runways, it was all lit with this popping colour.
Personally I was never a fan. The colour always seemed a little overwhelming and I was not into colours anyway. Now, the story is different. Colours have grown on me and more than anything I love a monotone outfit. I mean who wouldn’t want to dress all yellow and look like a banana right? RIGHT? No? Oh.
Anyway, I went a little overboard with the colour and literally wore it head to toe. A red corduroy shirt styled with a red trench coat that I wore as a skirt. Don’t worry, I was wearing a pair of shorts inside. Haha!

To take it over the top, like I wanted, I also wore a pair of red pompom earrings, did a red eye makeup too. For shoes I took a pair of black booties and wore some red and white sock. I only have one regret in my life, it’s not wearing my red mules with the outfit. Why you ask? I forgot. What a jerk am I?

I also made sure to shoot it on a red background and also took my friend Elmo along. Also, Faizan, the magician behind these pictures, made it all come through! Yay. Hope you enjoy!

Into The Woods

Jungles have always been really close to my heart. Whether it was reading about Mowgli, or the fact that I grew up on a hill station, jungles mean a lot to me.  Back in my hometown, I had a special place where I would go read, write, listen to my favourite Avril Lavigne songs, sing them out loud sometimes, had my first kiss and even contemplated killing myself. That spot, in the middle of the woods, witnessed a lot from my life.

The One Trend That Will Never Be Outdated

I had never realised this until very recently when all I could see at the H&M store was stripes, stripes and some more stripes. That got me thinking, if it was a new trend or was I missing out. On some more thinking, research and going back to memories of my fashionably scarring childhood, I came to the conclusion that stripes, in one form or the other, have always found a way to remain important in fashion. They have always disguised themselves and formed alliances with other trends of the time to remain relevant throughout. Does that mean they are a classic? I believe so.

How To : Wear Revealing Clothes Without Revealing Anything

As ridiculous as the title may sound, this has been a very much requested post by a lot of you who read the blog. Given the diverse country we live in, in most places, donning short, revealing clothes is not a possibility. Most girls asked me to do this so they can look fabulous and not turn up to college looking like Pooh from K3G and ultimately getting kicked out of the campus. Some of us are facing the rules set by the society, our parents and some other forces. Illuminati? Maybe that too. Honestly, I get out with wearing such clothes mostly because I do not live with my folks. So, while I strongly believe in wearing what you want, twisting your choices to respect the surroundings and occasions doesn’t hurt.

Photo Story: A Public Toilet

I have recently come to a realisation that creating images is also something I feel really passionate about.  Every time I come across a new concept, location, well anything, all I want to do create some pictures. And for good or for bad, I am not even concerned to include fashion in it anymore. I love images that can talk for themselves, recite a little story. So since this blog is what I live for and things I love, I have decided to do some photo stories from time to time. Just for your eyes (and of course, mine!).

The Spice Sisters Feat. Babbu

Thanks to the Internet gods, every day I come across so many people doing some of the most amazing work I have ever seen in the 24 years of my existence! One such person is Babbu The Painter, a person as intriguing as her Instagram username. Babbu, documented as Babneet Lakhesar, was born in Punjab but her family soon moved to Canada. On my explore feed I once came across a denim jacket with the face of an aunty (a typical Indian aunty). On opening the profile I stumbled on more gems, my favourite being a t-shirt with Govinda’s face all over, there was no looking back after that. We got in touch soon and I knew I wanted to something with her someday, SOMEDAY.

.POP.

Colour is Summer’s favourite child. While winters witness a lot of greys, and believe me, happy greys; summers welcome the yellows and the oranges. Yes, the fruits too. I personally like wearing colour all year round. And I am sure there are many of you who do the same. So, unless you absolutely hate colour (is that even possible? You little child of Satan!), you might like this story.

So, let me get this straight. I hate colour-blocking. Never tried it, never will. The reason only has to be my choice of aesthetics. So today we are talking about my kind of usage of colour; POP. Somewhere between monotones and a single colour pop, I found my calling. Here you pick up colours from the same family and put them together. But there are neutral blocks in the outfit that prevent your outfit from becoming a monotone look (Which btw, I absolutely also love!).
